HOW IT HAPPENED
- Dartmouth struck first, scoring two in the second off sophomore right-hand starter Jack Nelson. With runners on first and second with two outs, Nate Ostmo tripled to center, past the diving senior centerfielder Michael Strem to bring in two. Nelson came back with a strikeout looking to end the inning.
- BC got one back in the third as Alu singled to right with one out and moved to second on a chopper to first. Martellini doubled to left to score Alu and chase starter RHP Clay Chatham from the game. RHP Patrick Peterson got junior Mitch Bigras looking, stranding Martellini at second.
- The Big Green added a run in the third. Matt Feinstein hit a comebacker to the mound, moved to second on a wild pitch and scored on a double by Dustin Shirley. Nelson picked Shirley off second for the second out. After a base hit and a walk, Nelson got a groundout to end the inning.
- The Eagles scored one in the fourth off RHP Jackson Bubala to make it a one-run game. With one out, Adams laced one to right center and never slowed down rounding first, stretching it into a double. He stole third and with two down, freshman Aaron Soucy chopped one to short. Shortstop Ostmo’s throw bounced past first base, allowing Adams to cross the plate.
- Dartmouth scored five in the sixth off Alu to take an 8-2 lead. After getting two quick outs, Alu walked a batter and hit one to put two on. Shirley singled through the right side to plate one run. Junior right fielder Donovan Casey‘s throw home was in time, but Trevor Johnson avoided Martellini’s tag. Michael Ketchmark followed with a two-run double to left and Kyle Holbrook singled to center to score the fourth run of the inning. Alu hit to batters to load the bases and lefty Bigras came in to pitch. He hit a batter to bring in a run before a fly ball ended the inning.
- The Eagles scored one in the eighth off RHP Austen Michel. Bigras knocked a one-out base hit through the right side and with two down, Adams hit a blooper to right to put runners on the corners. Maselli knocked one up the middle to bring in Bigras. Freshman Brian Dempsey singled to center to load the bases but Casey popped up in foul territory for the third out.
